School Governors

The role of School Governors are defined by the Department for Education as:

‘………….the strategic leaders of our schools who have a vital role to play in making sure every child gets the best possible education.’

They have three key functions:

1. Ensuring clarity of vision, ethos and strategic direction;

2. Holding the Headteacher to account for the educational performance of the school and its pupils;

3. Overseeing the financial performance of the school and making sure its money is well spent.

Our governors play a very important part in the success of our school.  The governors support the school in its responsibilities to educate children.  They meet several times a year and the meetings cover a wide variety of topics including the curriculum, budget, policies, school standards and the safety of our children.  The governors support the school management team in running the school and they offer advice and guidance in their fields of expertise.  The governors are volunteers who are keen to play their part in making the school experience a positive one for parents, children and staff.
